A classic weekend spent lounging around the house and meeting with family can be the gift we all deserve after a long week. But it always feels like the weekend is over way too soon, and we spend the next week scrambling to catch up on the things we stepped away from. That creates its own anxiety, and we like to avoid unnecessary anxiety around here. Here are a few things you can do to get ahead before Monday comes around.
You land your dream job, but there’s one big catch— it’s all the way across the country. Don’t say no just because a move is such a hassle. Here’s how to get used to things once you get there, whether you’re moving alone or relocating your family. Whether it’s through your job or outside of work entirely (i.e., an college alumni network), find a place to bond with people who speak your language professionally through clubs and affinity groups.
Billionaires like Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Warren Buffett have massive amounts of wealth, but while certain parts of their lives are glamorous, there are frugal practices that have set them apart. In fact, many billionaires decide not to live lavish lives; the CEO of IKEA famously flies economy and drives a 1993 Volvo. Here are some modest habits of people in the billionaires’ club.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
